Nice meals and good service. Went a Tuesday and was relatively busy. Childrens meals are generous. Only downside is they didn’t ask if wanted any more drinks…

Bar staff very rude and not very helpful. Said to this girl that she was being rude, her comment was “well do you want to be served or not”. Staff need to leave there attitude at the door and learn to be nice to everyone.
